God's primary purpose in healing us from our hurts is to
introduce us to new depths of relationship with himself.
Lord, in my heart I plan my course, but You determine my steps
Life is not going as I planned. But I am so grateful that you are
not caught off guard. You knew everything that would befall me.
So please direct my steps as You determine.
I need you, Lord.
Carry me when I cannot walk.
For though I walk in the midst of trouble, You preserve my life.
Stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes. With
your right hand, save me.
You will fulfill Your purpose for me. Your love, O Lord,
endures forever. Do not abandon the works of
Your hands (Ps. 138:7-8).
I am so thankful that God allowed me to read this on the same day I found out I wasn't doing my residency. God is not caught off guard. He knew at the beginning of this process that the residency was not for me. He will guide my steps and fulfill His purpose for me. What an encouragement from Him after the discouragement of the world!
